Please join Reach the World, a global education and mentoring organization, for its eighth annual Traveler Talk hosted by Bank Leumi in Midtown!
This uplifting event will feature a panel of Reach the World travelers and educators. Travelers will detail their meaningful experiences writing for RTW and sharing their journeys online with K-12 youth in the United States. RTW educators will discuss how their students became global citizens through the empowering program.
Light refreshments will be served starting at 6:00 PM and the panel will commence at approximately 7:00 PM. Reserve your tickets today! John Merrow, renowned education journalist, will host this year’s Traveler Talk.
